Why an axe?
Two women had been hit, stabbed.
Hit, then stabbed.
So why an axe?
Simple. Because people were very near. It's quiet.
Is that logical?
So if McGinley killed the two women, maybe Bowen wasn't down to him or his hired hand.
McGinley's hired hand! Shit! McGinley's hired hand is back in Roylsden. Must mean just one thing. There could be another killing.
Or maybe there's just been one.
Oh, Shit! Shit! Shit!
Sheriff Cole leapt out of his chair. It teetered. By the time it fell over he was out of his office.
